Managing Information A.1. Maintain the Montana Lodging Tax for tourism promotion & development A.1.1. Build citizens awareness about benefits/impacts of tourism and uses of lodging tax A.1.2. Build awareness among elected officials about tourism’s impacts and benefits During this next year, we will be “mining” our nonresident visitor data set. Our priority is to profile visitors for each county in the state (with ample sample size) as well as each travel region of the state. Included in these profiles will be nonresident visitor expenditures, characteristics, and travel patterns where feasible. In addition, other economic data for the county may be included (where available) as well as tourism/recreation data from public land managers in the county. The intent is to fill an information need about tourism/recreation at a more local level.
